So on Christmas Eve as I went for my long winters nap

 [url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/derrius-guice-jersey-cheap]Cheap Derrius Guice Jersey[/url] , I had a little dream about my Redskins; and this is how it went...Daniel Snyder, under immense public pressure, and seeing his ROI slowly fading away, decided to put the team up for sale. The Joe Gibbs Group, comprised of - yeah, you guessed it, and some other prominent investors (including Joe Theismann), wins the bid to buy the team and Joe becomes majority owner or your very own WASHINGTON REDSKINS!The first announcement Gibbs makes in his opening press conference is that he is changing the name, but keeping the tradition of the team. His reasoning - he wants this to be a team for the people, and no name can ever take away the past accomplishments of this great franchise, but he also wants to be an owner who can just focus on winning football...without all the other distractions. The new team name will be the Washington Warriors, and the colors will remain Burgundy and Gold. There will be some changes to the uniform, including going back to the 70th Anniversary Spear helmet and jersey with the gold pants (the same jersey in white will be worn as an alternate jersey). The next order of business for Gibbs is to relieve Bruce Allen of his duties with the team, and appoint Eric Schaffer as the new team president. After Schaffer is formally announced, Gibbs and his new president begin a search to find a General Manager. The search is long, deliberate and detailed [url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/da_ron-payne-jersey-cheap]Cheap Da'Ron Payne Jersey[/url] , but finally the brass convince Louis Riddick to take the position, with the understanding that he will hire a new coach, and will have power over all personnel decisions. The day after Riddick’s introductory press conference, all the coaches on the current staff (with the exception of Jim Tomsula) are relieved of their duties. The new staff:Gibbs, Riddick and Schaffer work diligently on finding a new head coach to lead this team into the future. After many interviews, they settle on a guy Riddick is very familiar with - Josh McDaniels. In McDaniels, the Redskins get a disciple of the great Bill Belichick - schooled in his ways of discipline, accountability and perfection on both sides of the football. McDaniels brings Patriots current linebacker coach Brian Flores with him to D.C. to serve as his defensive coordinator/assistant HC. He selects Rams current quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor to be his offensive coordinator. Josh keeps Jim Tomsula as his defensive line coach. Free Agency:The new-look Redskins find out shortly after McDaniels is hired that Alex Smith will be announcing his retirement from professional football. This leaves the Redskins in a tough bind against the salary cap in 2019, but an insurance policy does kick into place in 2020 for $12 million - so at least they have that. To free up some cap space, the Redskins part ways with the following players:Zach Brown: $5.75 millionVernon Davis: $5 millionChris Thompson: $3 millionStacy McGee: $2.3 millionMason Foster: $2 millionTotal Cap Savings:$18.05 million*The Redskins re-structure the contract of Jordan Reed, saving $4 million in 2019.The Redskins should have around $32 +/- million in cap space to spend in free agency. The Redskins re-sign the following players:HaHa Clinton-Dix - 3 years, $20 million ($4.5 million cap hit in 2019)Adrian Peterson - 1 years, 3 million ($1.5 million cap hit in 2019)Josh Johnson - 1 year, 3.5 million ($2 million cap hit in 2019)Arie Kouandjio - 1 year, 2.5 million ($1 million cap hit in 2019)Byron Marshall - 1 year, 1.5 million ($1 million cap hit in 2019)The Redskins sign the following free agents:Shane Ray (EDGE) - 4 years [url=http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/brandon-scherff-jersey-authentic]Youth Brandon Scherff Jersey[/url] , $24 million ($4 million cap hit in 2019)Tyrell Williams (WR) - 3 years, $20 million ($4 million cap hit in 2019)Kwon Alexander (LB) - 3 years, $14 million ($2 million cap hit in 2019)Darian Thompson (S) - 1 year, $1.5 million ($1 million cap hit in 2019)2019 NFL Draft:The Redskins finish with a 7-9 record, and hold the 14th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.Riddick engineers a draft-day trade, that has the Redskins giving up their 14th overall pick in round one, for a 2019 second, 2019 third and 2020 first and third.

Missed assignments. Missed communication. All are plausible explanations for what's gone wrong with the Washington Redskins‘ defense lately.A unit that was a big reason for the team's strong start to the season is also now a big reason for the Redskins' rapid descent to 6-6 and a three-game losing streak heading into Sunday's matchup against the visiting New York Giants."We've just got to get off the field," Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said. "Got to find a way to get off the field." Only 12 of the league's 32 teams have given up more yards per game than the 367.4 the Redskins are allowing this season. That's bad enough as it is.But narrow the scope to the past five outings, and Washington's average balloons to more than 420 yards. Over the past three games [url=http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/d.j.-swearinger-jersey-authentic]Womens D.J. Swearinger Jersey[/url] , Washington's opponents have averaged 27.3 points."Defensively, we have to play better. We have to play better. These 430-yard games are too much for the defensive personnel that we do have. We have no excuses there," coach Jay Gruden said. "So the challenge will be, ‘Hey, if we have to win 7-6, let's do it.'"To Norman's point, the third-down conversion numbers are the most staggering of all.For the season, the Redskins are letting foes get the first down 44 percent of the time; only three clubs are worse. Over just the most recent five games, it gets worse, rising to a 54 percent success rate on third downs.It's probably not a coincidence that Washington is 1-4 in those games, dropping from first place to third in the NFC East.And now comes the challenge of dealing with the Giants and their two offensive stars: rookie running back Saquon Barkley, third in the NFL in rushing yards, and wideout Odell Beckham Jr., who threw one TD pass and caught another last week."We'll work on things that maybe have hurt us in the past and we've got to work on those and get better at them," Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said, "and just got to make sure we make tackles in the open field."Unlike all of the injury issues on offense — Mark Sanchez is Washington's third starting QB in less than a month [url=http://www.redskinsfootballauthentics.com/tress-way-jersey-authentic]Womens Tress Way Jersey[/url] , and the team is on to its third pair of starting guards — the defense has been relatively healthy.Plus, it was supposed to be getting help when the Redskins acquired Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at the trade deadline. Things only have been getting worse lately, though."It's frustrating," Norman said, "but we'll find it."Notes: LB Ryan Anderson (hamstring) and G Tony Bergstrom (knee, ankle) were ruled out for Sunday, while LB Zach Brown (illness), C Chase Roullier (knee), DL Matt Ioannidis (bruised shin) and WR Josh Doctson (strained hip) were listed as questionable. … With all the injuries along the offensive line, Gruden said the team hadn't yet decided who will start at the two guard spots and that the team might do some rotating of players during the game.
